COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Event Horizon Imperial Stout is an incredibly rich and luxurious beer brewed with ten malts, local honey, and four American hop varietals before and extended aging in oak bourbon barrels. The result is a beer with many layers of complexity. As the name implies, with one sip you will be unable to turn back. This 2010 special release will age well for years to come, or enjoy now in good company. Cheers!

Doodler (312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2013
22 oz bottle...Poured into a Yet snifter. Perfect for a snowy Colorado day like today. Crazy dark espressso color with a nice tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and aged bourbon. Taste has some sweetness and milk chocolate notes. Rich malts, bourbon, vanilla throughout the profile with a woody, slight heat on the finish make this easy to drink. Overall a delicious beer that I would love to drink again. Nice carbonation and full in body. Will seek out some more....

Bomber from timfoolery. Pours dark brown/black with a transient dark tan head. Aromas of smooth bourbon, with a honey itch toward the back of the throat. Full bodied. Flavor starts lovely dark chocolate, quickly followed by treacle and bourbon. It’s quite tasty. Excellent.
